Briefs for the Reading Room by Dan Marvin

Not every book is War and Peace, but every book deserves a little peace and quiet to help readers fully digest the material – a prospect that’s becoming more and more difficult in today’s hectic world…until now.

Meet Dan Marvin, a writer and book reviewer from central Kentucky. Dan is the author of a fascinating new book called Briefs for the Reading Room, which is not only the culmination of 25 years of Dan’s creative Flash Fiction, it’s also a bathroom reader. That’s right, a book specifically designed to be read in the John, or what I like to call…um…Flush Fiction, the perfect-sized stories to read between flushes.

Made up of 102 short, self-contained stories called micro-novels, Briefs for the Reading Room is a collection of one- to two-page stories in various genres that get the job done without all of the bells and whistles of longer, drawn-out stories. The book also contains tons of extras called Fabricated Factoids and Questionable Quotations that really keep things…er…moving.
